Gamesa sells German wind power plants to IKEA Group (45 MW)

Gamesa, a leading wind turbine manufacturer and a key global player in wind farm development, has sold a total of six German wind farms in four locations with combined wind energy installed capacity of 45.05 MW to IKEA Group in Germany.

The wind power assets are in Lower Saxony (Oberende), Hesse (Diemelsee I and II) and Rhineland-Palatinate (Winterspelt I wind farm and II and Zettingen), in northwest and southwest Germany, respectively.

The wind farm projects have been recently developed by Gamesa. The latest extension of the wind farm in Zettingen is currently being constructed. This transaction marks further progress in Gamesa’s strategy for developing and enhancing the value of its wind farm portfolio, which totals 22,000 MW on three continents.

Gamesa’s German business dates to 2003, and it has since developed, built and put into operation more than 190 MW of proprietary wind assets. Gamesa’s current project pipeline in Germany exceeds 500 MW at different stages of development.

With more than 15 years’ experience, Gamesa is a world leader in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of wind turbines, with more than 20,000 MW installed in 20 countries on four continents.

The company is also a global benchmark in the market for the development, construction and sale of wind farms, with more than 3,500 MW installed and a wind farm portfolio totalling 22,000 MW at varying stages of development in Europe, America and Asia.
